Tyler Dickerson releases debut single

Sunday, February 14, 2010 – After more than seven years playing country fairs and festivals before picking up a regular weekly gig at Tootsie's on Broadway in Nashville, Tyler Dickerson's debut single, Tell Your Sister I'm Single, was just released by Lyric Street Records.

The song goes for adds on Feb. 16. Tell Your Sister I'm Single reveals the story the story of a jilted man who, after giving his partner everything she wanted, is ready to celebrate singledom and find someone who will appreciate everything he has to offer.

Born in Hattiesburg, Miss., the 16-year-old singer discovered his love of music when he made his stage debut at the age of eight. He was discovered while singing and playing five days a week on the Tootsie's stage.

"The first time I sang, the man who books the place was outside and didn't get to hear me," he said oin his Myspace page. "The next Saturday I made sure he did. After I finished my two songs he offered me a spot at Tootsies every Tuesday and Thursday. I was hoping for the weekend but at least I had my foot in the door. Pretty soon I got my wish - I was singing Tuesdays, Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays on the front stage."

Dickerson, who co-wrote five songs on his upcoming debut CD, has been hard at work in the studio with producer John Rich recording his debut album. The two hooked up after Dickerson entered a John Rich talent search.

No word on when the CD would be out.

These are the touchstones of country , the guys who made country music what it was and still is (or maybe can be). When these folks would sing about being down-and-out and the rough-and-tumble, they knew of what they were singing about. Fast forward a few years to the country singers of today. »»»
Concert Review: With Tuttle, the music's in good hands – Molly Tuttle, preternaturally talented artist and current reigning IBMA Guitar Player of The Year (2017) lives up to the hype. Her songs are well-crafted and soulfully delivered. Boothbay Harbor Maine is a typical seaside resort town (perhaps slightly more upscale than most), which is somnolent, if not downright dead, 8 1/2 months of the year.... »»»
Concert Review: Carlile brings thoughtfulness – Brandi Carlile returned to the GRAMMY Museum for the third time, and it's easy to see why she's always invited back. The evening began with GRAMMY Executive Scott Goldman interviewing Carlile on a pair of stuffed chairs, which was followed directly by a brief set of live songs. The interview portion was informative, while Carlile's... »»»

Washburn, Fleck create "Echoes" Bela Fleck and Abigail Washburn have powerhouse individual talents; each has followed an estimable career path to where they find themselves today: making complex, but spare, records, writing music together and touring with their son Juno. Their new release, "Echoes In The Valley" features mostly songs written by Fleck and Washburn, banjos, Washburn's strong vocals and very little else.... »»»
